Very much at the vanguard of soul music, Wilson Pickett recorded some of the genres most recognisable and famous hits.
This collection does a good job of collecting all the best of his Atlantic recordings together. As this is a two disc set there is space for it to stretch its legs a little, and as well as the essential big hits such as 634 5789, Midnight hour and Mustang Sally, there is room for a few unusual but worthy additions, such as some early recordings with the Falcons, and some really smoking live cuts.
The sound quality is pretty good, with nice separation and a clean sound. There is an interesting booklet detailing Pickett's career. All in all a really good greatest hits plus package at a very affordable price.
